That tends to annoy me more often than not, I mean is it that difficult for the actual Studio to pick better artwork for a Steelbook release? It's a bit frustrating to have to pay almost double at Zavvi just to get better looking artwork.

Agreed and normally I would be annoyed but my movie spending in general has been way down the past year so I just bit the bullet on this one. Also pre-ordered the Looper 4K steelbook from Zavvi, will cancel it if any US retailer ends up getting it.

As stunning as they all look, I think I would prefer just 1 Steelbook with all 4 movies inside. So for now I'll stick with the older BD release as it takes up way less space.

I did pre-order Battle Beyond the Stars Steelbook on Amazon slated for 6/29, too bad they can't enhance this old movie same way they've been doing with others.

Yeah one jumbo steel would've been nice but its a nice set overall, cardboard housing aside.
Now that they are actually filming Indy 5 (which I didn't think was ever going to happen) I was a little hesitant to get this set but someone pointed out that now that Disney is the distributor, it likely won't or can't be bundled with the old Paramount films so I went ahead and ordered

I hear ya, as convenient as it is to just click onto any movie at any time, I still prefer having a hard copy for those times that you cannot.

Anyhoo with Target's BOGO sale I was able to get three movies I haven't seen yet, JW: Fallen Kingdom, New Mutants, and Venom. So I'll have some catch up watching to do in a few days. I almost got WW84 too but decided I'll wait for the best barging bin price for it.

Went to a Family Dollar store earlier today and bought the current new DVD for Star Trek the Motion Picture for 5 bucks. They also have the blu ray for live action Dumbo for 6 bucks also

Probably if 8K ever takes off, or whatever new format retires it. Then again I feel physical media might be dead before we see 4K bargain bins, though I have been known to get a great deal on some. But Dollar stores? IDK
